One day night, seventeen-year-old Kristen Jane Anderson decided that her pain was too much and she wanted to die.  She left a note for her mom and went to lay on some train tracks.  Thirty-three freight cars went over her, she lost her legs and her depression continued, but God had bigger plans for her life.

Kristen was in and out of the hospital and had several different counselors.  Her family, friends (old and new), and professionals helped her to regain her confidence in life.

About the authors-  Kristen Jane Anderson is a graduate from Moody Bible Institute and has been featured on Oprah.  She is the founder of Reaching You Ministries, where she helps those who need help.

Tricia Goyer is the author of many articles, novels, and nonfiction books.

My thoughts-

Kristen Jane Anderson is a remarkable young woman.  She has been through so much yet she has been able to reach an inner peace and through God help others.  I am so glad she has been able to heal and write the story for us to read. 

I think this book would be a good book to have in offices where they help people to deal with suicidal thoughts and other issues of desperation and also for those who have lost a limb.     

Would I recommend?  Yes.  I would recommend this book to everyone, because Kristen is so inspirational and her writing can lead us to know that we can get through it all with God’s help.
